As many of you know, there's something about being in the kitchen that makes me giddy. I don't know if it's the smells of the good food, the family time that I enjoy while being in there, or if it's the small taste I get (remember I'm dieting now ;) )---but there's something about it. I love having my kiddos in there with me. Sometimes, though, I HATE the clean up! A couple weeks ago, they made a bar style cookie. They were called Can't Leave Them Alone bars. We made a batch, they took some over to our neighbors (who I think of like my grandparents), and we froze the rest. They freeze well, and they thawed out just in time for the kid's lunch at school. It was also a nice little snack right from the freezer with a glass of milk. :) Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of the final yumminess. I do have some pictures of my kiddos making it though ;)
This recipe would be simple enough to do in your classroom too if you have access to an oven. If cooking in the classroom with your students, there are MANY educational discussions to be had. :)
Reading-reading a recipe, reading labels
Writing-Write a how to or writing using adjectives to describe
Science--baking is always science, right?
I was once told by my old principal that I have a way of finding objectives to tie into the "fun stuff" we're doing. I hope that was a compliment! HAHA :)

In school related news ;)
We are reviewing fact families and related facts. My students love to do dice games. I even get the big foam dice out as our intro to math lessons and let them take turns using them. They love it.
I thought this would become a fun morning work activity tomorrow (we have a music program tomorrow---so they're already going to be keyed up---need to keep things simple!) ;)
